    As most guys in the forum know, I’m a big fan of original Bob Marvel Guns:). That said, they are not easily found and when you do find them, most have been shot out. Figured I would post some pics of a recent buy that I personally think is one of the finest examples of Bobs work that I’ve seen...

    I’ve never been much of a long slide fan, but noticed more hitting the market. I understand the longer sight radius, but outside of that, what is the fascination with them?! Also what other practical purpose is there for a long slide outside of target shooting? 6” 10mm makes sense to me for...

    Well-Known Member I love my long slide and it is so much fun to shoot. The biggest issue is no holster option to throw on my heavy duty belt. Anyone know where to go? Anyone here make them for the long beast?

    Kind of been pondering a long slide for a while. Always thought they looked a little odd with that much slide hanging past the dust cover, but the look is really starting to grow on me more. For those that own them, do you think they are more accurate? Any issues with function moving the...

    Anyone know of a holster manufacturer that offers a holster (preferably Kydex) for the Springfield Armory 1911 TRP Long Slide (6 inch barrel) 10mm with RMR? Thanks.

    So, why do long slides always have adjustable sights? Can you accurately shoot them with fixed sights? Also, is .45 an acceptable cartridge or is 10mm preferred? Thanks in advance, C

    I know I haven't even taken possession of my EVO .45 yet....it should be here next week hopefully. But if I love it as much as I expect to love it, I can foresee me getting another one in the not too distant future. The question is basically this--a long slide .45 to match the government .45...

    Test fired my longslide 45 build today for the fist time. Loaded some very light loads and shot a half dozen which didn’t want to eject well (every other one) with a 12# spring. Tore gun down to check for anything abnormal in locking lugs etc. Then shot some factory 230 grain Remington’s and...

    Yeah, 6" is cool. I've got an AMT that is a 7", and have seen a few others that length as well . . . . But what about a pair of 8"ers - and Browning Hi Powers to boot . . . . ! This will REALLY give the boys at the range a serious case of "slide envy" . . . . ...

It is Baron blued (a very deep almost black) mirror finish. It has nitred blue small parts (including grip safety and 2 piece magwell) with a gold bead front...
  15. Competition 1911's
    I would like to acquire a Clark Custom long slide (6") 1911 made by Jim Clark Sr. It would likely be a Colt and may or may not be well worn. I am not interested in cosmetics, only smooth operation and fitment typical of a Jim Clark Sr. competition pistol. I have a Jim Clark Sr. High Standard...

    So far, Fusion and CZ seem to be all I can find in this configuration. I'm concerned that with the extra weight of the slide, 9mm might prove problematic. But if they exist (and run), I'd like to look into them. Thanks.
